Fandom uses this word as a verb to denote their interest in the possible (and perhaps more often impossible) romantic relationship between two characters in a piece of fiction belonging to any medium. It's really never used in a platonic way, but if it ever is, people tend to separately emphasize that they are using it platonically.

Usually written: Character/Character or CharacterxCharacter. Fanfiction without any shipping, or with little emphasis on ship is usually labeled genfic, which there is a depressing lack of.
Person 1: It is a little weird how much I am retroactively shipping DoogiexVinnie.
Person 2: Yeah. That's kinda damaged. And Vinnie's like a little weasel. He's got a weasel face.
Person 1: But did you notice how weirdly gay they are for each other???
Person 2: No. Eww. Stop talking.
